Hello List,

before I send a PR, maybe some of you can comment this:

With the sources from today, an initial telnet login (insecure) now
takes at least 11 seconds to establish.

If you login from a windows client:
C:\ telnet
<screen goes blank>
<waiting 11 seconds...>
NetBSD/i386 ( (ttyp1)

if you are on NetBSD
$ telnet -X sra
<waiting 7 seconds...>
Escape charakter is '^]'.
<wating another 10 seconds...>

NetBSD/i386 ( (ttyp1)

that is 17 seconds in total to wait. Any clue why ?

Greets, Zafer.

ps: I have removed "-a valid" from telnetd in inetd.conf to enable telnet.
